Over-sowing on hill country

Wesco customer Geoff’s hill country property in the photos (below) shows the results of over-sowing Wesco seed.

The results speak for themselves, and he commented that “sowing seed from a chopper when done correctly, I believe, will transform the way we farm our hill country.”

Trial on over-sowing

Wesco Seeds Ltd did a trial on over-sowing to see if we could discover a more summer safe option. We used Chicory, Plantain, Red and White Clover and Arrowleaf Clover. The results from this trial were outstanding. We discovered, when over-sowing on old pasture, the quality of the feed increased and we also found that this is a bullet proof option for over the dry summer months. This trial also proved that you can use a cheaper option of spreading by using a spinner and roller.

Trialing SupaNS Liquid Fertiliser

We wanted to trial and record our liquid fertiliser to prove to our customers how beneficial SupaNS is to your crops. We trialed this on an oat crop.

What we revealed was how healthy our oats were after using SupaNS. The silage crop tonnage was improved and so was the quality of the feed.

News and Crop Guides

Fodder Beet is Back!

Yes, it is that time of the year again! Fodder beet is currently leading the way in the farming industry. It is now being grown in all major dairying regions as well as being used widely across all classes of livestock, especially in Canterbury and Southland Farms where it is common for cows to have a diet of fodder beet for up to six months.

Why you should be planting Peas & Oats this year

Why? Because Peas and Oats produce spring harvested bulk silage in only 86-90 days. By adding peas which are high in metabolisable energy (ME) and have nearly three times the amount of protein as corn you gain an excellent quality feed.

The Benefits of Chicory and Liquid N

Chicory is a great quality spring/summer growing herb that is nutritious and palatable for stock feed and when planted and managed properly it can produce around 8 – 16 Ton of DM/ha/year. It is drought tolerant so proves a great option for non-irrigated or summer dry regions and the deep tap root means they can suck up trace elements from the soil.

Managing your Pasture/Crop correctly for the Upcoming Spring Production

Coming from a farming background we at Wesco Seeds realise the effort involved in gaining that balance between getting enough feed for your stock but not overgrazing so you damage your pasture for spring, knowing when to apply the correct nutrients, and knowing how much to apply, etc., etc. the list goes on.

What is the Difference between Goldstrike and Dynastrike Seed Treatment?
